Bribery and corruption in Australian local councils
Islam, Muhammad Azizul (2014) Bribery and corruption in Australian local councils. Public Money & Management, 34(6), pp. 441-446.
This paper explores concerns about corruptio and bribery in Australian local government and provides guidance for policy-makers on how to control bribery and corruption. Lack of regulation is a major reason why local councils are not taking appropriate anti-corruption or bribery measures. The author urgers regulators to impose radical and mandatory requirements, especially reporting requirements, on local councils. Australia should also look to other countries for successful measures to curb bribery and corruption.
